of crises. remember iraq. remember libya. i believe so far we can be quite proud that even though there are differences here and they're both within and between we have managed to keep things together. i believe we would be operating -- offering of victory on a silver platter if he allowed us either within the eu or in the trans-atlantic community to be divided about the response. i mean that only half seriously then do we should say thank you, mr. president, the reminding is that there is a need to have a vibrant and active nato. some people in europe are beginning to think that maybe after afghanistan we don't need this organization that much anymore. thank you, mr. president, for reminding us that it is a good idea for europe to look at how to diversify our energy sources such. thank you, mr. president, for also reminding us that it is totally essential as an objective for the european union to speak with one voice, not only when things are called bud particularly at times of crises. i believe you have given us enough. i was hoping we would not need this. it gave us up pretty g
say it and when we had gregory hicks, who was number two in libya say in testimony that his jaw dropped when he heard this, that was the first electric moment. this is the second electric moment. >> not only gregory hicks, but the former director of the cia says when he understood susan rice, they had nothing to do with the video. >> they're making a major distinction between the set of talking points which the intelligence community provided and heavily edited after input from the white house and state department. but that set of talking points didn't mention the video. it wasn't ant the video and susan rice's story was all about the video in concert with all the other e-mails that we saw in the white house issued talking points. when you look at the new batch of documents, you have this reclassification or classification of documents that were previously up classified. the timeline is fascinating. june of 2013, judicial watch makes a request for these documents. august of 2013, the house subpoenas the documents. in february of 2014, somebody somewhere classifies previously unc

left. despite early evidence that in the 2012 attack in benghazi, libya, it was well planned and organized, the obama administration initially blamed it on an anti-muslim video and called it a spontaneous event. this week, new documents reveal ben rhodes tried to re-enforce the video angle with talking points for administration officials that would, quote, underscore that these protests are rooted in an internet video, and not a broader failure of policy. and even with this latest speculation, jay carney is downplaying questions by calling them conspiracy theories and others on the left are piling on. >> diversion subterfuge. benghazi, benghazi, benghazi. why aren't we talking about anything else? what i know of what i have read in the press about those e-mails, were fairly consistent with what was put out there before. i don't think there's anything new there. >> you have to fill the space with something. i have to tell you, benghazi has filled the space way beyond its life. benghazi is a corpse. they tried to arouse it today, and it fell right back down. >> joining us now from

in benghazi, libya. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in that attack. democrats say this new investigation is a ploy to embarrass the white house before november elections, but republicans say the administration just hasn't told the truth. nancy cordes reports. >> reporter: for nearly 20 months, four separate committees in the republican-led house have held dozens of hearings, examined documents, and released reports on the benghazi attacks, but house speaker john boehner said today a special new committee is needed because the obama administration is "intent on obstructing the truth about benghazi," and "willing to defy subpoenas." boehner had long argued a special committee was unnecessary, but aides say he unnecessary, but aides say he changed his mind this week after the white house released previously unseen e-mails in response to a lawsuit. one of the e-mails was sent three days after the libyan attack. deputy national security adviser ben rhodes wrote in public appearances u.n. ambassador susan rice should underscore these protests are rooted in

post in benghazi, libya, that killed four americans including u.s. ambassador chris stevens. and separately the republican chairman of the house oversight committee, darrell issa, subpoenaed secretary of state john kerry to testify about the administration's response to the attack. skipping the usual step of issuing an official invitation to appear. a release of internal white house e-mails with new details about the response to the attack has raised questions among republicans about whether the administration was truthful about its initial characterization of the attack. >>> and in afghanistan, a desperate search tonight after days of heavy rain triggered a landslide in a remote village in the northeast. at least 153 people were killed and more than 2,000 are missing tonight. about 300 homes were buried. that's about 1/3 of all the houses in the area. >>> in this country, the news on unemployment took just about everyone by surprise today. 288,000 jobs were added in april. and that helped drive down the unemployment rate from 6.7% to 6.3%. a 5 1/2 year low. but it is not all goo

. you see, there is the real benghazi. a city in the north of libya, east of tripoli, a city of over 600,000 people. the site of an american consulate, the place where an attack on september 11th, 2012, took the lives of four americans. a place turmoil and violence. that is the real benghazi. that benghazi is appropriately enough in the background of this graphic. that embassy burning is in the background because that's the real benghazi. the other benghazi is #benghazi. #benghazi is the world of online conspiracy theories, twitter trolls, and facebook right wingers. #benghazi isn't a real place, where real people died horrible deaths. it's the alternate universe of endless conspiracy theorizing and propaganda that has sucked the entire right knee a paranoid vor decks. it's represented on the speaker's graphic by the fake breaking news banner that is there for no reason. this graphic and the speaker.gov. #benghazi is where you can find tweets about how hillary clinton has buckets of blood on her hands. the white house sends more personnel to the bundy ranch over cows than they did to
